    Citizen Eco-Drive Promaster Tough. 10 years old, and sometimes I think IT sets the time...

    If they aren't thermocompensated, they all are about the same.

    My Casio Forester is way more accurate than my Seiko kinetic.

    My Raymond Weil Tocatta is the best quartz watch out there. Know why? It doesn't have a second hand so therefore you can't obsess about accuracy.

    Wave Ceptor Casio G-Shock. Syncs (nightly) to the atomic clock. Always dead on.

    While the daily resetting of the watch via radio signal keeps the watch displaying the correct time, but it does not make the movement "more accurate."

    Accuracy is the ability of movement to keep time to within a certain error independent of outside intervention. I can re-hack a 2 dollar pin lever movement every hour manually (or even construct a complex radio controlled automatic resetting devise) and it will display the correct time to within a few tenths of a second, but it does not make the movement "more accurate."

    I know, thanks. It was kind of a tongue-in-cheek reply....

    That being said, it really boils down to which is more important (or more valued): the ability of the watch to always display the correct time, or how well it is able to keep the correct time once it has been set?

    Bulova Accutron Quartz. Seems to run equal with my Citizen Exceed.
